Lip Service: Burberry Lip Cover in Oxblood

Burberry got it right. Most companies who try to release a dark maroon lipstick always end up going too far one way or the other. The color is either too light, or way too dark and goth looking. But Oxblood rides the fence between the two, making for a very wearable lipstick.

I kept the rest of the face very simple, to really let the lip color shine. This formula is highly moisturizing and wears pretty much all day. I reinforced the lip line with Chanel’s lip pencil in Rouge. The colors are almost identical. This is such a comfortable formula, and the pigmentation level is fabulous. The color is balanced enough to suit a wide range of skin tones. I’d say that unless you are uber pale and not a fan of dark lips, pretty much anyone can wear this color.

Love.

  1. Simply gorgeous and I agree that some burgundy colours are way too gothic. I need some new lip liners and wonder if you could recommend a few brands that you think are great. I probably need a red, pink and deep orange. Thanks in advance.

  2. I like Chanel Rouge for red, NARS Rosebud for pink, And Make Up For Ever 17C for orange. Hope that helps!

  3. Thanks so much for your suggestions. Will have a look at each of them.
